It's been a very long time since I posted in here, really should get back to updates on here though most of you lot follow me on my other feeds too. Advantage of this though, I can ramble on into detail about stuff heh.
20th-Jan-2011 10:31 am - Dad's had a relapse...
I got the news last night my Dad's cancer has returned...It's something I wish I never had to hear, and it really messed me up last night. I went into work today and spoke to my line manager straight off the bat before my shift began. told him what was what and he said I could have the rest of the week off. So today I'm just gonna try and get my mind all sorted if I can, tomorrow I'm off to the parents to see my Dad and chat with him.

I pray to the Gods I don't break down in front of him...
28th-Dec-2010 03:08 am - Well it's been a while...
So I guess an update is warranted in this here journal of mine.

Currently I'm still in that shitty, insult of a job I call my money earner; we just had 5 guys get made redundant and another fired from the department in December, and we figure more are going to get the chop in the next few months. So I'm still hunting for work when and where I can, to help further this I'll be getting myself sorted with a Door supervisor SIA badge, will open a fair few opportunities for me, and if not a full job, maybe just Friday/Saturday night doorman work.

This was my first Christmas where I had to travel back home to have it, nothing really much to say I guess. Parents picked me up on Christmas eve and we did some last minute shopping before going to their place. Stayed for the next couple of night,s watching TV at times and plodding around the net on my laptop in my old room at other times. Came back on Boxing day to my lair once more, get some relaxation in before my next trip.

Yep, 2 days for a turning around as on Wednesday 29th December 2010 I am making transit to Tampere in Finland, seeing Chibi, Hysi, Weed and others of whom I know over there for New Years. I guess you'd wanna know why and how it came that I'm going to a bloody cold Northern Territory for New Years aye? Well, circumstances meant there wasn't gonna be a big New Years party at mine this year around, and I wanted to do something for New Years. First one away from home so couldn't just let it slip by uneventfully, and I had sad this to Chibi who promptly turned round and said "Well, come here for it then. We got a party happening, biggest Fur meet in Finland in the year".

So after giving it some thought I decided I'd go, course this now means I'll end up cold as hell and that's before they insist I join them for a session in the Sauna (as they manage the cool off bit between sessions by jumping into the snow...ass naked). Don't get me wrong, I won't be regretting it one bit as it is a life experience for me. i might never get to go to Finland again or get to go on such a trip. So expect an update from me in the New Year about this trip, and what insanity happened while there...
13th-Nov-2010 11:39 pm - Writer's Block: Time for a reboot
Which phrase would you choose to replace the ubiquitous "Have a nice day" phrase?

Be safe
7th-Oct-2010 07:12 pm - Gods damnit...
Well, it's happened again. I've been hit by fraud. Not a big amount by any means, but seeing that someone, somewhere has access to my details and cna make online purchases somehow is unnerving. It is showing me more so the risk of having my earnings and wealth stored within a digitized medium such as a bank. but alas, it's the only way things are done these day's isn't it....

Now for a strong talk with my bank...will include a threat of moving to another bank and such.....grrrr.
20th-Sep-2010 12:04 am - New security clearance granted
And now I'm 23...congratulations? i dunno....still feel the same about a lot of things deep down and such.
12th-Sep-2010 08:07 pm - EF16 - A Dragon's field report
Ok, so a week on from getting back I finally get my tail in gear and write this here report.

While my travel wasn't anything special, I did run into 2 Birmingham furs at Hannover airport while waiting for our baggage. They had been on my flight as well lol. We caught the train together so that helped a lot, gave me some company and such and instantly new friends to chat with.

The convention this year was in it's new home of the Hannover Hotel Magdeburg, a 4 star superior hotel which was very nice. Rooms were decently sized, layout pretty awesome too. The cost of drinks I knew wasn't going to be cheap, but did drop a brick when i got charged over 23 Euro for three Black Russians; ah well next year it shall be different possibly.

The convention itself was amazing, great way to meet new people and relax. I attended one panel a day (missed 2 I wanted to attend, whoops) and attended the art auction and 2 vs Kage after I had won my art pieces as silent auction ended in the main art show. Didn't have to fight for anything in voice auction which was good.Hopefully next year I attend there will be more panels that grab my attention and I get to.

The trip home was again a little boring flight wise, but the train journey beforehand was made good by bumping into another BritFur heading to Hannover too on the same train. Another Con attendee was on the train and he helped us out in finding somewhere to sit as the one end of the train was packed solid. While at Hannover airport, eating some food in McDonald's, I swear i saw a fursuit walk past in the corner of my vision. Alas, was just tricks, which didn't help my mood. I miss the fuzzy walking balls of floof.

When i had been dropped off at home by the parents my Post Con Depression hit home hard and I felt really shit, but a night's sleep dealt with it. Still wish I was with all the awesome furs I know, but alas our day to day lives take us away. Maybe one day I'll get lucky, win loads of money and be able to travel and see all the awesome people more freely.

Only the future holds the answers, to the next Eurofurence!
18th-Jul-2010 05:41 pm - Holy catnip Ratman!
We got a Zombie walk in Brum next Saturday! I so wanna do this now, cue military trousers, OG shirt and 'maybe' a gas mask..bloodied on the inside of the lenses, down the arms etc.

Only problem is...i threw out all my zombie type make-up...so no white powdery stuff to make me more pale, no fake blood. Curses!
10th-Jul-2010 08:24 am - To London! To a Utopian Playland!
Off out to London soon, get there just before 1100 hours then down to meet the other Toy soldiers at the London Eye after I've dropped some excess kit at the Hostel I'm staying at. Expect pictures and all that stuff from my weekend of Fun and Happiness.

18th-Jun-2010 10:03 pm - Ahhhh, spam ^.=.^
The following was received today via both a Linda and a Howard who had added me on MSN, blocked and reported for spam of course. Just so funny I got such, you would think they wouldn't bother as people would instantly block and spam report them when they see the differing emails aye?


Hi, my dear friend!

The most important thing in life is love and healthy and strong relationships... That's the thing I desire most of all!
I am an ordinary girl with a big and lonely heart... I don't have very high demands to the second half, I want my man to
be sensitive, caring and attentive...
I want to give my love and tenderness to the only man! If you are looking for a lady, if you are lonely too or your heart
misses warmth and attention.
You can write to me: nastasya223@yahoo.com

Your friend Anastasiya.

Ok, i was gonna have a groan and moan about work as today's shift was shit, but news from Iron Maiden changed that.

Good news: Iron Maiden's new album 'The Final Frontier' is being released on August 16th. Bloody aces that, can't wait for new material from the band.

Bad news: The tour that goes with it, sees them playing only 1 date in England at Sonisphere. Note, unless i get in with a event security company covering that festival, or i get lucky, I'll be missing this tour show.

Now what the fuck, this is a NEW album release, not a 'stuff from across the years' thing, thus there should be multiple dates throughout the UK, cause for fuck's sake I seen Maiden live on the last 2 album tours, I do not wanna miss them on this one.

Fuckin' stupid only doing select festivals for a new album tour. Hell, if they did a show in London fine, I'll fork out and go, but I can't afford seeing them at the festival that's for damned sure.
26th-May-2010 08:29 pm - Gods Furrie,s why?
Ok, so this fur from a country within goes asking about if his fleece based fursuit is ok for EF as he thought it wouldn't as it wasn't fur covered (What the hell point number 1). But then after he has been told, yeah it's fine, he then says that he can't go this year anyway cause he is broke (what the hell point number 2). Then goes onto saying "I'll be going next year...long as i got a new suit" (What the hell point number 3)

So tell me, Why the sodding fuck you go asking about if a suit of yours is ok to wear, when your not even going to the convention until 2011? And then also, if you can't go this year form being broke, buying another bloody fursuit is gonna  lessen your ability to go next year. Why? Why are you so stupid Fandom that you put fursuits so highly a thing to have? Yes I want one too but I am not making it the soul deciding point on if I got to a Con or not. That point is well and truly embedded in the fact that you need money to go to one of these here Cons.

If your going to go to a convention my dear Fandom, focus on having the money to go first before you then start thinking what extras you need or think you must have to be able to attend.

And I know where this all stems from, the bloody convention videos. Every single time all I see is footage focused on the fursuiters, there is nothing, or if there is rarely, showing the non-suiters and things they get up to. We do a lot as well ya know! Get pictures of non-suiters for once ya suit obsessed people!

I know ya sitll watch me and such. And yeah, I am just a pile of flesh...not worth shit all to anyone, not even myself. I'm sure such information will make you smile or something.
27th-Apr-2010 09:24 pm - Hmm....pondering...
Yeah I'm pondering again....and not happy pondering either...I am pondering do i get out before I'm stuck in a job I'll grow to hate...or do i stick it and be secure that I have a job...

My own decision in the end. My choices in life are none but my own...
19th-Apr-2010 08:39 pm - Work type stuff
So, it's week 6 of my employment with SCH and you want honesty? It's a right rancid pile of shit, a complete and utter waste of my working abilities. I am having to work with sub-standard equipment (meaning old fuckin' brooms and no floor sweeping machine), I'm only now to get an induction to the company as well.

Yep ya heard right, beginning of week 7 is when I'll get the induction I should have had on day 1. Seems the company really doesn't give a damn does it? Well I know from inside intel, it's pointless working for them if your on the lower rungs.

So fuck them, I'm gonna begin the job hunt again. It may time some time, but least in that time I can build up some needed savings etc. And well, maybe it is time I consider these administrator jobs, I've seen a few and I believe it is time the dragon realised the days of being an honest grafter are dead and gone. Cause to do any of that work, you gotta have all sorts of certificates, permits and qualifications now it is silly.
